Campus Cleanup

Tennyson’s campus serves children receiving K-12 schooling, family, and outpatient therapy. We pride ourselves on creating an atmosphere where kids and families feel engaged and welcome. Our small (but mighty!) maintenance team always appreciates the extra help from groups who want to volunteer. There are a wide variety of needs depending on the season but volunteer work can include gardening, cleaning classrooms, and painting touch-ups.

Commitment Level: One-Time

Become a Classroom Volunteer

Classroom volunteers work directly with students in our K-12 School & Day Treatment program for children who have experienced complex trauma. They support school staff with day-to-day operations including helping students with assignments, crafts, or other activities.

Commitment Level: Recurring
